Hello. I am Wendy.
Before I could walk, I held a crayon and made marks, often in places that my Mother did not appreciate (on her walls). I could not stop then as I cannot stop now. My high school Art instructor tried to push me beyond my interest in realism and mockingly called me a “human photocopier”. He meant it as an insult, but I could not think of higher praise.
I have drawn and painted all my life, but it was only after I began to create Art about and for my 2 beautiful children that I became serious about being an artist.
My first published paintings are illustrations for the children’s book “Feathers” and my children modeled for many of the playful scenes.
In addition to painting, I have worked as a social worker for over 30 years. Each year since 2008, I have taken a mini sabbatical from work and family to participate in intensive workshops progressively farther and farther afield.
I have had the opportunity to work with some of my favourite contemporary watercolour artists from around the world: Elizabeth Kincaid, Birgit O’Connor, Carrie Waller, Tom Lynch, Paul Jackson and Soon Y. Warren.
These workshops have taken place in beautiful settings: Mendocino California, Cape Cod Massachusetts, Paris and Southern France, throughout Italy including Venice, bonnie Scotland and Mexico!
After the workshops are finished, one can find me back home in my studio practicing my one handed painting technique because I am cradling my beloved studio dog Murphy on my knee.
I now work primarily in watercolour which facilitates my exploration of colour, composition, value and form. I enjoy painting many subjects, but in particular, I love painting children's portraits, florals, architectural landscapes and the illusion of glass.
I have been given tremendous opportunities to instruct, to have my Art featured in books and on film, and to travel throughout North America, Tunisia and Europe.
I want to thank my family and friends for their support and encouragement to pursue my dreams.
What an incredible journey!
